More info

These Coopers PET (plastic) beer bottles are a light-weight alternative to glass and are perfect for lager as they are able to withstand high carbonation pressures. The bottles are double-skinned, making them imperious to oxygen, so are suitable for long-term storage. The supplied caps include a tamper proof seal and simply twist off. Caps can be re-used, although the tamper-proof seal is single use and we recommend that you replace the caps after four or five uses, to ensure a good seal is maintained.

The bottles are amber, to prevent light from affecting your beer (skunking) and because they are plastic, you can give them a squeeze to determine how carbonation is progressing. Simply clean with hot soapy water and rinse well - don't use scourers, as the plastic will scratch.
